The Sea And Sand of MUI NE

Mui Ne – this fishing village a bit over 200 kilometers north of Ho Chi Minh City stands for sea and sand. And talking ’bout sand, I’m not referring to just a dreamy beach but to amazing sand dunes on the outskirts of Mui Ne.

Whether you prefer them in yellow or in red – you need to get up at the break of the day to enjoy them most.

Definitely a rural spot.

Actually, you can take the trip on your own since there are public buses going to the Delta on a regular schedule. This way, you can put together your individual program.
